Meatloaf in a Muffin Tin is the perfect way to cook meatloaf. My husband LOVES meatloaf and it is a super easy meal to prepare however when prepared in a loaf pan it takes so long. It heats up the house and often times I have to worry about if it is “done” in the middle or not. When I saw this idea on pinterest and mentioned it to my Mom she reminded me that she used to make meatloaf this way when we were little to save cooking time (always listen to your Mom). I knew immediately by using meatloaf in a muffin tin my meatloaf worries were over.
Instead of using a loaf pan use a muffin tin! It cuts your baking time down to only 20 minutes (bake at 400 degrees) AND best of all it is perfect for portion control! It is easy to cut traditional meatloaf into large slices but with this method you can really watch your portion size. You can easily use them later in the week or for leftovers. I found that there was little fat that rose to the top that I was able to remove with a paper towel Be sure to Re-Pin this post.
